    July 10, 2015 - Yellow flowers - part 1

    It's been yellow-flower time for a few weeks, but now that the entrance courtyard is dominated by the Koelreuteria and Meliosma, it just seems like the theme for the month.

    Here is Koelreuteria paniculata, with a honey bee and the bumble bees I think are Bombus vosnesenskii, as I mentioned in the Solanum posting.

    And the Meliosma pinnata var. oldhamii, with a worm-head. Taisha Mitchell posted better photos of the buds in Meliosma oldhamii var. oldhamii - Botany Photo of the Day.

    I didn't see the tag for this, but if I've learned anything doing these postings, this should be Inula hookeri, in the Asian Garden.

    July 10, 2015 - Yellow flowers - part 2

    So many yellow flowers. I'll start with my favourite, that I didn't get around to posting when I saw them a couple of weeks ago. The Spartium juncium, Spanish Broom, with what seem like huge (for Broom) flowers, still looks great.

    Zinnia grandiflora. I had to look this up, the littlest zinnia flowers I've seen with a name like that. I see it's known as wild zinnia, and has a whole lot of other common names, including Rocky Mountain zinnia, Little golden zinnia, Yellow zinnia, Plains zinnia, and Prairie zinnia (according to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center).

    Anthemis tinctoria, and Ligularia fischeri

    July 10, 2015 - not yellow flowers

    Here are a few more things that interested me yesterday, including Asphodelus aestivus, which was one of the reasons I went to the garden. Tamara Bonnemaison wrote about them in Asphodelus aestivus - Botany Photo of the Day, and when I checked my photo of that plant from two years ago, I thought I must have got it wrong then. But no, Nadia noticed that at the top of those long stems were really the flowers photographed by Gideon Pisanty in that posting, complete with a seemingly drunk bee (in the BPotD posting). They really were hard to photograph. Better to check the BPotD photos.

    Competing pretty well for attention on the entrance plaza is x Chitalpa tashkentensis 'Pink Dawn'.

    Sorbaria tomentosa, in the Asian Garden, is very showy right now.

    Nadia was excited to see the Styrax tonkinensis.

    This is Ammi visnaga, in the Physic Garden, with very gracefully-shaped inflorescences.

    And one of my favourites, Datisca cannabina, is in bloom now. Or maybe those are fruits?
